Yeah, it’s really frustrating, it’s true. Using apache commons or creating your utils class can be both solutions. Or if you use Kotlin, you can solve this problem with extension functions, I think… Personally, I use my “TextUtils” class.

It’s your decision: you can run JVM tests if you use one of these solutions, otherwise you have to run instrumented tests.
